If alphabets represent the sounds of language, can texture articulate the harmonies of nature?

Last month’s NWNL SPOTLIGHT on the California Drought documented the state’s inland Central Valley. Usually, the Sierra Nevadas’ runoff supplies water to the Sacramento River Basin’s rice fields, walnut orchards and migratory waterfowl havens around
the Buttes. However California’s 3-year drought has drastically
reduced this water supply, so critical for agricultural and
ecosystem needs throughout the Central Valley and in the
Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta.
